Youm Eun-Ho leads golf as China`s Guan Tianlang slips

Incheon: China`s teenage Masters sensation Guan Tianlang slipped down the field in the Asian Games men`s golf Friday, paying the price for dropped shots late in his round.

Guan, who became the youngest player at the US major and the top-placed amateur at Augusta aged 14 last year, carded a par-72 second round to lie 13th on three under, a full eight shots off South Korean Youm Eun-Ho.

Youm, 17, shot a six-under-par 66 to move to 11 under for the tournament, two clear of first-round leader Pan Cheng-tsung of Taiwan.

The 15-year-old Guan was two under at the turn but a bogey and double bogey on 16 and 17 spoiled his back nine as he ended par for the day.
